I have a small confession for which I hold my temporary insomnia completely responsible. I have started yet another crochet blanket. But, in my defence it is a gorgeous broomstick crochet, and in a beautiful wild rose blush and it’s for my new bedroom.
So, that’s ok.
It is!…just look at it on a chunky size 22 needle.
It has been my weekend love and has been a welcome distraction from the snow and freezing temperatures; and it grows quickly too.
This blanket is so pretty and feminine and uses a very old stitch. Traditionally, hooked over a broomstick handle, hence the name. It is a little undignified, sat with a huge needle between your legs whilst you anchor the stitches over that size 22!!
Not really one to take to the coffee shop if you catch my drift!
So that is three blankets on the hook now…my seaside stashbusting blanket is all up to date, you can check it out just here and my Charming Harbour blanket is making steady progress too.
I have also been really enjoying the ‘yarn – a – long’ series which has been running each Sunday through March. There is still time to join in with the chatter, last Sundays is just here.
Enjoy the rest of your week whatever you have planned.
